super bowl...the niners are counting down.. and so are we!! we are exactly 10 days, three hours and 19 minutes and, oh, what about 18 seconds or so
12:10 pm
away from the super bowl. the 9ers are counting down and you know what? so are we. you can catch the game right here on cbs 5 sunday february 3rd. all next week we'll bring you live coverage from the big easy. michelle griego is on the way along with our sports director dennis o'donnell, vern glenn and mike sugerman will have fun out there, as well. for those of us staying home, how about a tv? bigger the better. that's the room of thumb for super bowl fans looking to buy a new big screen. cbs 5 consumerwatch reporter julie watts explains what the best size and the best type of big screen is for the big game. game. [ pause ] >> all right. we're going to try to work the bugs out of that and bring it back to you later. but for now, we are going to go to our weatherman, because it's a little rainy out there, isn't it. >> and because we can.
12:11 pm
because you're here. >> yes. and i am ready to go! we have some cloudy skies outside right now, folks. we have seen some more scattered showers showing up out there, in fact you better be prepared for some raindrops over the next few days as things are going to stay a bit unsettled. let's get you out there now. high-def doppler radar showing you some of those showers. that line stretching down across the santa cruz area and also into the southern parts of san jose, continuing to see some showers there. that line stretching over the east bay, as well. we are going to continue to see some rainfall along this boundary into the afternoon. this may even sweep further to the north. sow he get the idea not a big rain event but we are seeing some showers outside if you are headed around the bay area. and there is san jose looking pretty wet right now. we have the clouds and the showers in for the forecast. staying cloudy tonight with a chance of a few more raindrops. but the pattern is staying a bit unsettled. the computer models not handling very well an area of low pressure just off the coastline. looking back toward the city of san francisco, temperatures not
12:12 pm
bad mainly in the 50s across the board. 57 in san francisco. 57 also in oakland. and 55 degrees in concord. so here's the low that we're talking about off the coastline. it's retrograding, moving back away from the coast, at the same time you see all that moisture sweeping back up into the sky so that's going to keep things unsettled probably today and maybe into tomorrow morning, as well. something to watch out for. so that low spins off the coastline, you finally got another front off here that will eventually kick this system east. but in the meantime it will be unsettled and wet, so keep the umbrella handy. it won't be a huge storm that's racing across the bay area. computer models showing you scattered showers coming up in the south, somewhat unusual. those will continue into the evening hours and then overnight tonight, and it even continues with a chance of some showers into tomorrow morning. but just some lighter amounts of rainfall, kind of some nuisance rainfall out there, so it looks like things staying unsettled here and around the state. maybe some more showers in the sierra nevada, as well. very high bases and that's
12:13 pm
because we are seeing some warmer temperatures now. but that will change over the weekend. how about around the bay area today? we are looking at 50s and some 60s for highs. i think low 60s on the warm end. as we look out over the next couple of days, well, we are going to see those clouds continuing into friday with even a chance of a leftover sprinkle early on tomorrow morning. then i think we start to dry out a little bit catching a break from the stormy weather as we head in toward saturday and then on sunday chance of cold rain as the system drops into the bay area to bring some showers and then i think drier weather toward the middle of next week but yeah, best to just keep that umbrella just in case maybe a little wet from time to time over the next couple of days. >> the rain is okay. it warmed up this morning, at 4 a.m. it was 50. >> remember we were in the freeze temperatures not too long ago. >> thank you. well, a simple thrift store has become a community mainstay
12:14 pm
the mission behind the market that has earned the founder this week's jefferson award. >> oh, i remember. >> reporter: when marge early looks around the thrift station at danville she marvels at the professionalism at this all volunteer operation. >> i understand you have quite a toy department. >> reporter: and toys are just the tip of it. an army of volunteers sorts through thousands of donations filling shelves with clothing, household items and attracting a steady stream of shoppers. >> this is amazing. >> reporter: marge started it with a $300 loan from her mother and a small group of volunteer moms in danville. they call themselves the friends of discovery. >> no one has had any experience at all in the mercantile business, hardly anybody has even had a job. >> reporter: today, the thrift station is one of the top 25 businesses in the san ramon valley and all of its profits support community mental health. >> we have been coming here for 30 years. i'm a mental health advocate so i have to thank you so much. >> reporter: just look at the reaction when they learn that marge was the woman who started it all. this year marks 40 years since
12:15 pm
marge and the friends of discovery started the thrift station. by the end of the year, they will have donated over $7 million to the discovery counseling center of the san ramon valley. >> the friends of discovery and marge have meant that we have been able to keep our doors open. there is no way that we could offer the services that we offer at the fees that we charge and still stay in business. >> reporter: kathy chiverton is executive director at the discovery counseling center. >> just remarkable, marge. >> reporter: in the early days they were just trying to raise money for a drop-in center for troubled teens. >> they just wanted to give them someplace to go where they could possibly straighten themselves out. >> reporter: today, the center has interns, graduate students working toward their professional licenses, in every school in the san ramon valley school district. all are supervised and trained by a staff of licensed professionals. and at the drop-in clinic they see clients from the community six days a week. >> what they have been able to
12:16 pm
do with what was just an idea, a couple of women saying, well, we'll sell our extra clothes, it's just absolutely remarkable. >> reporter: marge says she just did what she could. >> i just saw a need and filled it. >> reporter: so for creating a business that supports mental health services in her community, this week's jefferson award in the bay area goes to marge early. kate kelly, cbs 5. the thrift station accepts quality donations for sale and support of discovery center. if you would like to help the cause, you can connect with them online using the link at click the "connect" button at the top of your page, then jefferson awards to find our story on marge. all right. let's give it another try with julie watts. she shows us the best size and type of big screen for the big game. here it is. reporter: super bowl season
12:17 pm
is tv buying season and it even beats the holidays. >> i just want a big flat screen tv for 50." as long as it's a good deal. >> reporter: with so many options, plasma, lcd, l.e.d., smart tv, what's a football fan to do? >> the plasma tvs still tend to be the rock stars. >> reporter: cnet's brian cooley says your best bet for the big game is plasma. >> they are not as thin as many of the others or as sexy if you will and then tend to be thought of as an older technology but we did our list of the best cheap, best value and best high-end flat panel tv and a plasma model won in every, single category. >> reporter: with a higher refresh rate, plasma handles motion better meaning that touchdown pass will be crystal clean and plasmas allow for better off angle viewing. >> when you have those folks over to watch the game you may overpack that living room and people are sitting over here left and right in different chairs trying to get a good look at the screen. a plasma is very good at that. >> reporter: but while l.e.d.s may not be ideal for the big game, their picture is brighter and more vibrant for everyday
12:18 pm
viewing. now, when choosing a tv, cooley says size matters. think 50" for the average living room which you should be able to find under $1,000 and while you do definitely want a 1080p, just how smart does your tv really need to be? >> the so-called smart tvs which are just internet connected tvs may not add a whole lot in terms of watching football or watching the super bowl because the nfl doesn't make much if anything available for streaming. however, you definitely want a smart or connected tv going forward. i would not buy a new tv today that doesn't have those features built in. >> reporter: the best day to buy a tv is the day after the super bowl. that's when prices come back down. and buyer beware of a manufacturer who promises a faster processor or something else that sets them apart. for the most part, they all use the same parts. on the consumerwatch, julie watts, cbs 5. up next, you are what you eat at least emotionally. the food scientists say will help keep you calm and make you happier, too.
